How does cpanel site hosting function?

For your info, it's good to know that the majority of the cPanel-based site hosting offers on the present web hosting market are furnished by a quite insubstantial business segment (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) called hosting reseller. Reseller site hosting is a type of a small-scale business segment, which provides an immense amount of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing literally the same solutions: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everyone. Why? Due to the fact that at least ninety eight percent of the webspace hosting offers on the entire web page hosting marketplace provide the very same solution: cPanel. There's no diversity at all. Even the cPanel hosting price tags are identical. Quite identical. Leaving for those who demand a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/site hosting CP option. So, there is only one fact: out of more than 200k webspace hosting brands all over the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2 percent! Less than two percent, mark that one...

200,000 "web hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly labeled

The web page hosting "variety" and the website hosting "offerings" Google reveals to all of us come down to just one solution: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different webspace hosting trademarked names. Assume you are simply an ordinary person who's not well aware of (as the majority of us) with the web site making processes and the web space hosting platforms, which in fact power the separate domains and web portals . Are you ready to make your web hosting decision? Is there any web site hosting option you can decide upon? Sure there is, as of now there are more than two hundred thousand webspace hosting distributors out there. Officially. Then where is the problem? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these more than two hundred thousand different website hosting brand names around the world will offer you exactly the same cPanel web space hosting Control Panel and platform, labeled in a different way, with the same price tags! WOW! That's how great the variety on today's site hosting marketplace is... Full stop.

The hosting LOTTERY we are all part of

Simple arithmetic reveals that to select a non-cPanel based web hosting service provider is a gigantic strike of luck. There is a less than 1 in 50 chance that an event like that will take place! Less than 1 in 50...

The pros and cons of the cPanel website hosting solution

Let's not be unfair with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and possibly covered most website hosting business demands. In short, cPanel can do the job for you if you have only one single domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Drawback Number One: A dumb domain name folder system

If you have 2 or more domain names, however, be ultra attentive not to delete fully the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will refer to each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very easy to remove on the web server, since they all are situated into the root folder of the default domain, which is the quite well known public_html folder. Each add-on domain is a folder located inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time try not to erase the files of the add-on domains, please. Examine for yourself how good cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here my-default-domain.com is located)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-second-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-domain.com (an add-on domain name)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/my-third-wife.net (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of my-default-domain.com)
public_html/rebeka.my-third-wife.net (a sub-domain of an add-on domain name)

Are you getting puzzled? We absolutely are!

Negative Point Number Two: The very same mail folder structure

The email folder structure on the web server is precisely the same as that of the domain names... Making the very same error twice?!? The admin chaps strongly strengthen their faith in God when managing the mail folders on the electronic mail server, praying not to muck things up too irreparably.

Negative Aspect Number Three: A sheer deficiency of domain name manipulation user interfaces

Do we need to point out the utter lack of a contemporary domain name management GUI - a place where you can: register/transfer/renew/park or administer domain names, alter domains' Whois details, secure the Whois information, modify/set up nameservers (DNS) and Domain Name System resource records? cPanel does not incorporate such a "contemporary" GUI at all. That's a considerable predicament. An unforgivable one, we want to point out...

Drawback No.4: Multiple user login places (minimum 2, maximum 3)

How about the demand for another login to avail of the billing, domain and technical support administration GUI? That's beside the cPanel account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel-based hosting corporation. Sometimes, on the basis of the invoicing transaction tool (particularly devised for cPanel only) the cPanel web hosting service provider is using, the ardent clients can wind up with 2 additional logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain administration user interface; 2: the trouble ticket support section), ending up with a total of 3 login locations (including cPanel).

Inconvenience Number 5: 120+ webspace hosting CP menus to become acquainted with... quickly

cPanel presents to your attention more than a hundred and twenty menus inside the site hosting CP. It's a remarkable idea to learn each one of them. And you'd better pick them up quickly... That's very insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based web site hosting vendors:

As far as we are aware of, it's not the year 2001, is it? Remark that one too...
